I saw these wheels (style 37) on a beautifully done red e36 today at work...



Looked great!!!

Then, I got thinking, and wondered what the CSL wheels would look like on an e36?



Anyone have pics of either on e36s? Which one do you like better?

the first wont fit on there (OEM). and the second ones i dont think the CSL rim will fit either

I saw the first one on an e36 with my own eyes... It was outside the BMW University so it must have been a tech's car that was in getting trained....

I could see the CSLs not fitting... they're 19s!

I think the first set is made in the 5x120 by wheel exchange or AAArims. But stock I think they've got a different bolt pattern. Not sure about the CSL ones.

Weird... I could have sworn they were OEM cause the guy works at BMW and they had the ///M symbol on them....

Hmm, I'm not sure. If i remember correctly they were on the 850i. Look up what their bolt pattern was. The e36 is 5x120, if those rims have a 5x120 they will most likely fit as long as the hub is the same size.

M parallels wont fit, thats why they make replicas.

pretty sure, the real ones have the m logo engraved in the rim, where the air is in the tire
